The Aldingbourne Country Centre. There's so much to see and do, all year round!

If you like the idea of supporting a local charity by having fun, the Aldingbourne Country Centre is well worth a visit. Woodland walks, our open farm, ride-on tractors, castle playground and wonderful home-cooked food are just some of the attractions visitors enjoy. From guinea pig cuddling to getting your favourite chair restored, it really is a different and great day out.

Changing Times with Changing Places

As a Trust that supports adults with learning disabilities – we know how important it is for families to be able to enjoy a great day out.

Over a 1/4 million people need “Changing Places” toilets to enable them to get out and about and enjoy the day-to-day activities many of us take for granted so in the new building there will be changing facilities that anyone with a disability can use.

Changing Places toilets provide:
• A height adjustable changing bench
• A tracking hoist system
• Adequate space in the changing area for the disabled person and up to two carers
• A centrally placed toilet with room either side for the carers
• A screen or curtain to allow the disabled person and carer some privacy
• A non-slip floor

Mum, Sarah Gooderham told us “ we are so excited to be able to visit as a family. In the past we have only been able to spend a morning in certain places because of lack of changing facilities making us feel rather guilty when it comes to having to refuse my able bodied son to stay and enjoy the rest of the day. This is a huge thing many people just don’t understand.”
